Versatility is seen as a core strength for Jordan Addison with the Vikings

At USC, Jordan Addison worked different areas of the field. Caleb Williams hit him on downfield, over-the-top passes against Stanford in the second game of the season. Addison worked the deep-intermediate parts of the field against UCLA. He was also part of the Trojans’ short passing game at times.

The USC receiver was noticeably versatile. His body and playing style are very different from Drake London, USC’s 2022 first-round draft pick, but Addison is a playmaker in his own right. His versatility was central to his success with the Trojans. This enabled him to be a top-25 pick in the 2023 NFL draft.

With the Minnesota Vikings, Addison should be able to use his versatility to great effect.

Vikings Wire has more on this dimension of Addison’s profile:

Justin Jefferson is already one of the more versatile wide receivers, making an impact in the slot and outside as a boundary receiver. That versatility has allowed head coach Kevin O’Connell to move him around the field to create mismatches.

“Addison’s college career is riddled with versatility, with the 6-foot wide receiver playing inside-out a lot. Like Jefferson, Addison playing as a slot wide receiver allowed him to attack mismatches with defensive backs.”

Good luck containing this Minnesota passing attack in 2023, NFL teams.
